Influences on our perception of God–A discussion with Leaving Certs

And while I’m on the topic!!

Where do we get our perception of God? Possible influences may be our family, our friends, our religion, our society and media.

However I believe that cartoons are becoming a larger influence on our own perception of God. Why? We watch cartoons as young children varying from age’s five to eight. We are oblivious to a transcendent being. We watch cartoons, The Simpsons been the classic example. We watch these cartoons, our perception of God grows. Our first perception is usually the one that sticks with us the longest until we mature, where it may vary where our insight gets an added dimension.

I mean how many of people’s perception of God when they were young was of an old big man with a beard living up in the sky? I know mine was!!
